About me and my therapy practice

NB: I am working on-line and on the phone until lockdown ends. I have no space currently.

Do you feel stuck, anxious or depressed? Is life very challenging? I offer a welcoming space to look at what is going on in your life.

I am calm and compassionate and help clients to look at long-standing behaviour that is no longer helpful, your upbringing or past trauma. Or you may wish to make changes around a current specific issue or relationship. Perhaps you simply wish to understand yourself better. I will work with you at your pace. I bring a warmth and curiosity to my work but feel that humour is also important. 

Who I work with

I work with adults aged 18 up and appreciate the impact of isolation, depression and feeling different. I have worked with students, pregnant women, mums, men, the elderly. Issues such as:

Depression, anxiety, OCD, panic attacks
Relationship issues
Cultural difference
Addiction, (esp. gambling)
Abuse, self-harm, suicidal feelings
Attachment, family relations
Trauma, often using bodywork.
Men's issues
Mid-life
Chronic pain and health anxiety
ADHD in adults

I am interested in working with attachment issues and narcissistic parents - how the care that we received as a child, or lack of it, impacts on us, and the expectation of men to be strong and unemotional. 

Where I work and cost

I understand that it is daunting finding a counsellor so we can meet for an initial session without commitment. I work from Orchard Street, BS1.

Other Information About Me

I have worked in a university student counselling service and an agency for gambling addiction. I teach mindful yoga.

I abide by the BACP's ethical values. I hold a Diploma in Integrative Counselling from University of the West of England.

My first session

I offer a 15-minute free phone conversation to discuss therapy with me. A first full session will involve me taking a full history of your emotional development: family, past events, current difficulties, medication. It also gives you the opportunity to ask questions about therapy and how I work.
